Grants to USA and territories organizations to address food insecurity for vulnerable adults aged 50 and over. Funding is intended for direct service, research, education, outreach, and field-building projects. Funding will primarily be awarded to national and regional organizations with built-in distribution channels, such as affiliates, members, chapters or collaborative partnerships.
For Direct Service projects, local organizations will only be considered if they have the ability to serve thousands of low-income older adults, on their own or in conjunction with other organizations.
AARP Foundation is committed to investing in innovative projects to serve tens of thousands of low-income older adults. The final investment amounts will depend on a combination of factors including the number of low-income older adults the proposed project will serve over the grant period, the strength of evidence of program effectiveness, the outcomes measurement plan, and the viability and strength of the proposed scaling plan.
The majority of funded projects will be Direct Service projects, as these projects seek to immediately and directly serve the needs of low-income older adults.
